Since we started this petition, we have learned a lot of NEW information. Initially, the plans only included a Dollar General. However, on the SW corner, Hanlex Development is going to lease building #1 to Dollar General (12,500sf) and two other buildings to undisclosed occupants. Building #2 will be 12,800sf and building #3 will be 3300sf. All three separate buildings will share 149 parking spots. ALL of this on one corner!
The North Port's Planning and Zoning Advisory Board has approved this development with a 5-2 vote. The two people who voted against this development understand there are too many unanswered questions that will negatively impact our neighborhood.
The fate of this development will go before the NP City Commissioners on July 8th at 1:00pm at City Hall for the final vote. We hope to have a lot of people in attendance. Each person will be allowed 3 minutes to express their concerns against this development. To show unity, please wear red!
